The report responds to President Carter's directive to identify health and environmental problems associated with advanced energy technologies. The report contains a presentation of the highlights of the issues and the detailed information requirements identified by panels of a workshop held in Leesburg, Virginia in August 1978 to address the health and environmental effects of coal gasification and liquefaction technologies. The purposes of the workshop were to: (1) assemble multidisciplines of biomedical and environmental scientists to address current developments in these technologies, (2) review and identify specific health and environmental issues and problems associated with their development and commercialization, and (3) consider research strategies required to address them and to identify requisite information needs for resolving uncertainties of assessing the relevant impacts of coal gasification and liquefaction technologies. The six panels of the workshop were: occupational and public health and safety; air quality; water quality, water quantity, and aquatic ecology; terrestrial effects; ambient measurement and monitoring; and source characterization. Panel reports containing specific information on environmental and health effects, information requirements, and detailed research statements are included in this report.
